Yes, that's a good film. I think I got mine from publicdomaintorrents but will certainly be interested in viewing yours, and, in general, I'm glad it's here now at IA.

My list isn't comprehensive--I just started looking over my downloads over the years and found out why I didn't have certain titles. I'm downloading "Danger Flight" to transcode. Not a good film like "Black Raven" but I feel it's worth doing. Nice work.

The bigger files look better and smoother on larger screen tv with less pixelation. Just my personal opinion.

These ultra-large files were probably created by one-pass transcoding.

They can probably be reduced in size without loss of quality if two-pass, variable bitrate transcoding is employed, along with video noise-reduction.

Also, a codec that's more efficient than mpeg2 should be able to reduce size with no quality loss.

I'm right with you on that. Some of these larger files may present definite advantages to the viewer, but then some won't.

Believe me, I'm no expert on this, but a lot of this early stuff is clearly not blu-ray ready. But you are right: more can definitely be better. Case by case, I think.

I tend to stick with uploading 700MB DivX files. Those tend to take about five hours to upload with my computer. I hate to think how long a 4GB file would take to upload. Probably days.
